    What type, brand, and strength lighting are you using?

    I suggest adding lots more additional foliage -- real or silk, to fill in the front of your setup. That will provide many needed hiding places to make your grandis feel safe.
    I'm using 4 50W of those garden leds, I hope it will be enough for the plants :X(Also using zoomed UVB)
    I made some mistakes in the background construction, but i will try to add more plants.

    Sometimes learning is all about trial and error.

    Zoo Med's UVB is excellent! Did you choose a linear 10.0 UVB? T5 or T8? 12 or 18 inches long? Zoo Med's current recommendation is to change the tube annually.

    Consider adding additional plants planted in their own pots. I use green plastic pots or terra cotta pots for my Phelsuma's sansevieria.
